Here are a couple approaches.
1) On my Windows server 2003 system:
CYGWIN_NT-5.2 server 1.7.9(0.237/5/3) 2011-03-29 10:10 i686 Cygwin
Execute the following in a mintty window at a bash prompt:
$ C:/winnt/system32/help sc
This prompts with "Would you like to see help for the QUERY and
QUERYEX commands? [ y | n ]:"
Pressing Ctrl-C terminates the query and returns to the bash prompt.
On the same server using CYGWIN_NT-5.2 server 1.7.14s(0.260/5/3)
20120415 17:52:03 i686 Cygwin, Ctrl-C leaves me with a hung window.
2) I can achieve a similar effect by the following process.
In an mintty window at a bash prompt:
Microsoft Windows [Version 5.2.3790]
(C) Copyright 1985-2003 Microsoft Corp.
The current date is: Tue 04/17/2012
Enter the new date: (mm-dd-yy)
Pressing Ctrl-C using 1.7.9 returns me to a bash prompt, using 1.7.14s
leaves me with a hung window.
I can repeat 2) on XP with 1.7.9 and 1.7.10. Specifically, these versions:
CYGWIN_NT-5.1 pc 1.7.9(0.237/5/3) 2011-03-29 10:10 i686 Cygwin
CYGWIN_NT-5.1 pc 1.7.10(0.259/5/3) 2012-02-05 12:36 i686 Cygwin
